Hello there,

I think there was something wrong in understanding the prescription.
This is a very high dose and 7 tablets can not be taken together.
Besides this is not the dosing and frequency of gupisone (prednisolone).
Also a steroid is given in a fixed dose for a certain period of time and then tapered off gradually.
It is not suddenly stopped as mentioned by you in this prescription.
A steroid should be taken with extreme caution as it can have serious effects on the body.

Take care.
